Hi fellow users!

I would like to use BibliaLS as my default greek font, but it's not an option on the preferences menu. I've tried downloading the font to my computer, but it doesn't appear in Logos. Any way to do this?

Try typing "Set greek font to BibliaLS" in the command bar.

Tom:

Following your example, I used the command 'Set Hebrew font to NewJerusalemU' to set the default Hebrew font to 'NewJerusalemU', a commercial Unicode Hebrew font widely used in biblical studies and available from Linguists Software. That font is a little more classical in design than SBL Hebrew, and I prefer it for biblical use. However, I noticed that when I did so some of the horizontal spacing was messed up and certain words were run-together. Though I did not do any comprehensive testing, this seemed to especially affect the spacing between words, especially when a maqqeph was involved.

Is this a known problem, and is there any work-around that I can use to fix it so that the text displays properly in that font?

David,

We haven't done any testing with NewJerusalemU. I don't think that there's anything you can do to fix the rendering in resources, but you can make a suggestion that we support the font here: http://logos.uservoice.com/forums/42823-logos-bible-software-4
